to 1336
Pandyan Dynasty 500 BCE-1600s CE, Chera Dynasty 3rd century BCE-12th century CE, Cholas (Cholas) 3rd century BCE-1279 CE, Hoysala Empire 1026-1343. Ports on the Malabar and Coromandel coasts were engaged in interregional trade (export articles : black pepper, textiles). The Cholas in 1025 undertook a raid against Srivijaya (Sumatra). From c.1000 CE onward, maritime trade more and more came into the hands of Muslim traders.
In the coastal regions, communities of Syriac Christians, Jews and Muslims attested to old trading connections. Inland, from the 9th century onward, Hinduism became dominant, Jainism maintained a minority position, while Buddhism declined, to face extinction about the 14th century.

Most of South India was part of the Hindu Vijayanagara Empire, capital Hampi. Calicut was a major trading port (black pepper, textiles), visited by Ibn Battuta in the 1340s, by Ming admiral Zheng He in 1403 and by Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama in 1498. Attempts of the Portuguese to conquer Calicut failed.

In 1565 the Hindu kingdom of Vijayanagar lost much territory to the allied Muslim Deccan sultans. Much of western South India came under the Sultanate of Bijapur (Adil Shahi Dynasty), the east under Golkonda (Qutb Shahi Dynasty). The remainder of Vijayanagar fragmented in 1643, the kingdoms of Mysore, Madurai and Tanjore being among its successors. The Malabar coast was divided into a number of smaller states, among them Kozhikode (Calicut).
From 1657 to 1707 the Mughal Empire fought a lenghty campaign with the object to conquer and annex South India. The Sultanates of Bijapur and Golkonda were terminated.
Portugal held Coastal strongholds since the early 16th century. In the 17th century, the Dutch, English, French and the Danes arrived to establish coastal forts of their own (Denmark : Trankebar 1620, England : Fort St. George at Madras 1644, Dutch Republic : Cochin in 1663 taken from the Portuguese, France : Pondicherry 1674).

Death of Aurangzeb; his attempt to conquer southern India has failed. Maratha states arose which controlled much of Central India; Hyderabad State from 1724 to 1798 nominally was part of the Mughal Empire. In a war with the Marathas, Haider Ali in 1758 consolidated the Sultanate of Mysore; Mysore fought wars with Britain in 1767, 1779, 1789 and 1799.

In the 4th Mysore War, Britain defeated the Sultanate of Mysore and replaced the (Muslim) Sultan by a Hindu Raja. Most of Southern India was administratively part of the Madras Presidency (headquarters Fort St. George, Madras). The princely states of Hyderabad (since 1798 independent), Cochin, Travancore and Mysore were under "indirect rule". French India included Pondicherry (capital), Yanaon, Carical and Mahe.
In an 1824 Treaty, the Netherlands ceded Dutch India (possessions in Malabar) to Britain. In 1845 Britain purchased Danish India (capital Tharangambadi, in Danish Trankebar). Until 1857 the Madras Presidency was administered by the E.I.C.; from 1858 until 1947 by the Colonial Office, as a crown colony.

since 1947
In 1947 British colonial rule ended. Plans for a state called Dravidistan (Dravida Nadu) did not materialize. The Madras Presidency and the princely states, most notably Hyderabad, Mysore, Cochin and Travancore, became part of the Union, since 1950 Republic of India. Hyderabad State was occupied, the monarchy terminated and the state partitioned in 1948. In 1954 the Republic of India annexed the French possessions of Yanaon, Carical, Pondicherry and Mahe (French India). South India administratively wasa reorganized into the states of Andhra Pradesh (Telugu-speaking), Tamil Nadu (Tamil-speaking), Kerala (Malayalam-speaking), Karnataka (Kannada-speaking; at the coast Konkani) and the Union Territory of Puducherri (former French India).
